Intro: A 750ml black waxed bottle, with a best before date of 1st April 2021. Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: Black in colour with a thin brown head that dissipated quickly and left only sparse spotty lacing.
Aroma: Coffee, chocolate, vanilla, brown sugar, licorice, chocolate ice cream, with caramel and sweet milk notes.
Taste: Moderately sweet, brown sugar, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, sweet milk, licorice, caramel.
Mouthfeel: Creamy, medium bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: It’s a very enjoyable sipper. But it’s a sipper more because of it’s sweetness than it’s high abv, as the alcohol is very well hidden. Aroma was excellent, and the taste matched it well.

ABV: 10.9%
Style: American Imperial Stout

My rating: 4
My beeradvocate.com rating: 4.01
My ratebeer.com rating: 3.9

Intro: A 330ml bottle with no bottled on or best before date. Poured into a snifter glass.

Aroma: Chocolate, coffee, licorice, oak, with light brandy notes.
Taste: Chocolate, caramel, coffee, light roast, cocoa, wood, licorice, boozy, with dark fruit and brandy notes.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: A nice sipper with the brandy coming through quite nicely. It’s been aged in my cellar for quite a while, and I think the last time I tried it was in 2017, although I don’t think I had any notes from that time. Despite this, in this case, I prefer the original base before the barrel aging.
